    1834 Classic Head Half Eagle, MS64
    Plain 4, McCloskey 4-C Variety

    1834 $5 Plain 4 MS64 NGC. McCloskey 4-C, R.2. The Classic Head design was introduced on half eagles in 1834 with a large mintage of 657,460 pieces, some with the old Crosslet 4 in the date but mostly with the newer Plain 4 style. The new design marked a change in the specifications for all U.S. gold coins, instituted because the intrinsic value of the old tenor gold pieces exceeded their face value and they no longer circulated.

    The present coin is an impressive Choice specimen, with well-detailed design elements and partially prooflike fields. The vivid greenish-gold surfaces show just a few minor contact marks and hairlines and overall eye appeal is outstanding. Census: 44 in 64 (2 in 64 ), 8 finer (10/13).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25RR, PCGS# 8171)
